Quiz: Holocaust Range of Responses in Google Classroom

Quiz: Holocaust Range of Responses

The following quiz covers readings for your Socratic Seminar on Tuesday. You may not work with others.

Due:

Socratic Seminar: “To what extent could ordinary people’s choices have successfully prevented the Holocaust?” in Google Classroom

Socratic Seminar: “To what extent could ordinary people’s choices have successfully prevented the Holocaust?”

With far-right movements in the United States, rising antisemitism, and conflict in the Middle East, now is more important than ever to consider the role of individuals’ choices on the society we live in. With that in mind, we are debating:

“To what extent could ordinary people’s choices have successfully prevented the Holocaust?”

To help get at this question, we have several smaller discussion questions that will help us answer us:

Systems & Choice: For bystanders (e.g., “Bystanders at Hartheim castle,” “A Nation at the Garden,” etc.): how much responsibility do they have for the deaths of the people? What are lessons to be learned from their stories?
Systems & Choice: How realistic is it for us to expect people to be upstanders or rescuers (e.g., “Protests in Germany,” “Le Chambon: A Village Takes A Stand,” “Deciding to Act”)? How much should the ordinary person be expected to sacrifice or risk for justice based on their universe of obligation?
Evaluate: To what extent do you believe the claims of perpetrators (“A Commandant’s View,” “They Thought They Were Free”) that they couldn’t have done anything to prevent their actions?
Systems & Ideology: To what extent are individuals responsible for resisting ideas—like antisemitism, fascism, social darwinism, eugenics, etc.—when they 1) taught them from an early age or 2) seeing propaganda about it? How can individuals resist ideas like this?
Systems: What roles does individuals’ universe of obligation play in considering how much responsibility individuals have for their role in the Holocaust?
Connection to today: What connections do you see between  our readings, and what is taking place in the world right now (e.g., rising antisemitism & Islamophobia in America, acts of terrorism & genocide occuring in Israel-Palestine)? What role do we have in these events — how can we move from being bystanders and victims to upstanders?

Systems & Ideology: To what extent are individuals responsible for resisting ideas—like antisemitism, fascism, social darwinism, eugenics, etc.—when they 1) taught them from an early age or 2) seeing propaganda about it? How can individuals resist ideas like this?
Systems: What roles does individuals’ universe of obligation play in considering how much responsibility individuals have for their role in the Holocaust?
Connection to today: What connections do you see between  our readings, and what is taking place in the world right now (e.g., rising antisemitism & Islamophobia in America, acts of terrorism & genocide occuring in Israel-Palestine)? What role do we have in these events — how can we move from being bystanders and victims to upstanders?
